    Damn those feckin pot holes! hit one that hit both my front and rear nearside that threw the tracking out and and the steering wheel off a bit.Ive had it laser tracked and my front n/s camber is out of tolerable specs.Looks like ive bent something that isnt visible to the eye....so I need to take it somewhere but not a dealer.I know f all about suspension but would do a better job myself than the dealer.I trust the guys completely that did the tracking, but fixing camber is beyound them as its not something that is adjustable apparantly.Anybody know a local to coventry/birmingham please? ta

    Afraid not but make sure you go get a pic of the hole before it's repaired. Then you can claim your allignment, fixes etc from the council.

    I know a little bit about suspension but always get a professional to carry out any work for me. Where are you located?

    Just checked your profile. You are closest to Chris Franklin at Center Gravity in Atherstone. He has set up both of my previous A4's. I would recommend you speak to him.
